Brian Fleming, one of Sucker Punch’s producers, recently revealed a whole bunch of new info about inFAMOUS: Second Son on the PlayStation Blog. Second Son was originally revealed at Sony’s PlayStation 4 event this week but it was mostly just a trailer. Now, we know more about the game, including the name of the game’s main character, Delsin Rowe.
Delsin Rowe is the star of Second Son, and you probably know someone like him: A 24 year-old who is absolutely convinced he’s destined for greatness; though so far that greatness has managed to elude him. He grew up just outside Seattle, where his great – if accidental – calling comes crashing into his life. After rescuing occupants from a fiery bus wreck, he discovers that he suddenly has the ability to direct, manipulate and even transform into… Smoke. Could he have absorbed this power from one of the passengers he pulled from the wreckage?
Setting the scene: It’s been seven years since the Cole McGrath episodes and the world has clearly changed. Anyone showing signs of being a so-called “bio-terrorist” is immediately handed over to the Department of Unified Protection (DUP) — a government agency created to ensure there is never a repeat of the catastrophic events of Empire City and New Marais. So Delsin, who has never been particularly respectful of authority, finds himself caught in the DUP dragnet – And decides he’s not going to go quietly.
Second Son is going to explore themes of liberty, protection, and mistrust of one’s government. Not only will Delsin be in conflict with other super powered people, but also with the law enforcement that keeps the city “safe.” It’s a darker more political spin on the InFAMOUS franchise.
